I'm new to 3FC, but have been struggling with my weight all my life. I'm 39 now, so that's a whole lot of struggle.
I'm very overweight right now. 307 lbs. As bad as that is for my physical health, it's worse for my mental health. I feel like a slave to junk food. I wake up everyday with the same goal of NOT binging and I can do pretty well all day, but when I'm alone at night, I do it again and again. And then I wake up the next morning horribly depressed.
I feel depressed and angry a lot. I'm not on medication for that because it really doesn't help. It's my own behavior that makes me miserable. I don't know why I do it.
I am trying to switch to a whole food, plant-based diet. I find this diet makes me feel soooo much better. Way less depression. No anger. No binging. Lots of energy. I have had brief periods of success with plant-based, but then I come up with an excuse to eat junk again.
Anyhow. I'm here. It's another day. I want it to be a happy one.
Thank you all for being here. I look forward to knowing you all.
